  1. obedience plant

    An obedience plant, also known as "Physostegia virginiana", is a species of flowering plant in the mint family. It is native to North America, where it is found primarily in the eastern and central parts of the continent. It gets its common name from the characteristic that the stem and individual flowers stay in place when moved, appearing 'obedient'. It is a perennial plant that can grow up to 4 feet tall, producing spikes of tubular, pink or white flowers in late summer and early fall. Great for gardens as it attracts butterflies and hummingbirds.
